Dishes That Are So Hard to Cook, They Made Us Question Our Cooking Ability

Okay, let’s be real here. All of us, at least once in our life, have googled “easy to make food at home” and felt like an incarnation of Gordon Ramsey after making our “easy 3 step pizza”. But let’s raise the stakes for a bit. Let’s talk about some of the most difficult dishes you’ll ever attempt in the kitchen.


Okay, read this carefully. A whole turkey stuffed with duck, stuffed with chicken. Plus you have to remove all the bones without damaging the appearance of the bird and have to cook the chicken perfectly but at the same time not dry up the turkey. Bit of a twister, innit? So much of a twister I became British for a second there.

Bearnaise Sauce

It’s a sauce. Just another sauce. But, it’s made in a glass bowl over boiling water and has eggs in it, so if the bowl gets too hot, you have yourself some scrambled eggs and a big failure of a bearnaise sauce. Not just another sauce now, is it?

Baked Alaska

Ice-cream coated with a sponge, topped with delicate meringue, and baked. Sounds like a delight. It would be if it weren’t so tricky. You have to place it in an oven for long enough such that the meringue outside is nice and firm but the ice cream inside isn’t melted. How does one not melt the ice cream, I’ll never understand.

Khanom Chan

It’s probably the most refreshing cake I’ve heard of. A Thai cake made with coconut, tapioca, arrowroot extract, and lots of love (awww!). Here’s the tricky part though- it’s a layered cake, so to form the layers you’ve got to let each layer steam enough to set but still be a little jellylike before adding the next layer. Now that’s one love story that asks for some serious effort.

Calling out all the Gordon Ramsey wannabes right now. Make these at home and then we’ll talk!

For all cake lovers, here’s a story you would absolutely love!

Christmas cakes hold a special place in many Indian homes, and most of us have fond memories of indulging in decadent, delicious plum cakes.

Mambally Bapu, a businessman turned bakery chef from Thalassery, is the culinary genius who created the first-ever Christmas cake.
In 1883, an Englishman named Mr. Brown asked Bapu to replicate the plum cake he had brought from England.

Brown gave a brief demonstration of cake making and also provided him with a bunch of ingredients. Still, Mambally discarded them and applied his technique. He used local spices and desi ingredients to create the Christmas cake. Mambally presented the cake to Mr. Brown, and Legend has it that Brown certified it as the best cake he had ever had.

So when you bite into your plum cake this Christmas, say a silent thank you to Mambally Bapu. And Follow MasalaBox for such exciting stories!
